Fuckin' bouncers..they're so rude!!!! I just left my friends' stuff on the corner for me to watch over but then that stupid bouncer shook my neck and told me to leave the stuff inside the cloak room.. I got so pissed off with what he did, he could have said things in a nice way. I told him not to touch me then he told me to get out! I didnt even do anything wrong.. He was the one being aggressive! if anything happens to my neck, I'll sue them! LOL!!

Can i just say i had such a great night at zoo bar on friday night.
The music was excellent & i danced all night.
Drinks were an ok price & i expected it to cost more for a club in central london.
The people inside were a good mix of girls to boys which is better than some places. I am already planning on having a party there soon!

Even though i read these stupid comments from people i still do love to go to zoo bar and it is one of my favourite places to go. I have many friends that go there and are regular customers & totally enjoy thenselves.

If zoo bar is really that bad how come it is one of the busiest clubs around and the line sometimes is just amazing to see how many people love it.

Zoo Bar has great student nights during the week especially tuesday (really cheap drinks) and on a saturday night it just is so much fun listening and dancing to Dj Eddie play his tunes.

This was my worst bar experience in London. Although the 8 of us celebrating a friends leaving do, went in with the best of intentions and a good, friendly mood we ended up having the worst night ever, being abused by bouncers and regretting giving our money to a place like this. The security stuff -who btw are everywhere!-is full of ignorant ex-bodybuilders who were bullied back in school and got this job to get revenge on the society. After being repeatedly harassed by one of them we asked to speak to the manager who - surprise!- looked like coming out of a Guy Richie movie (or wanted to look like one), treated us with disrespect, was hostile and with even worse manners than the bouncers. (Apparently he used to be one of them who got promoted for having a record number of teenagers beaten up in one night!!)
They seemed to regularly throw people out of the bar with any excuse - which we figured out is a good way of refreshing the clientelle every hour or so by the long queues outside, and pocketing more money.
Generally there are no rules or rights in this bar, it is like entering a crazy person's home and you have to play by his rules. Seriously, there are so many nicer places to go in London, with friendlier atmosphere and much better service.
There is one thing I owe to give them thought: they couldn't have chosen a better name!
